To help prevent clogged drains and ensure smooth water flow in your home, here are a few simple but effective tips.

Regular Cleaning

Make a habit of regularly scheduling drain cleaning services–even if there aren’t any obvious issues. This preventative measure can help clear drain lines of minor build-ups that could lead to more significant issues over time.

Use a Drain Stopper

Install drain stoppers in your sinks, tubs, and showers to catch hair, soap residue, and other debris before they go down the drain. Additionally, empty the stoppers regularly to prevent build-ups that can lead to a clogged drain.

Dispose of Waste Properly

Avoid putting grease, coffee grounds, food scraps, and other solid materials down the drain. These impurities can clog up your drain lines sooner than you may think. Instead, properly dispose of them in the trash or compost.

Baking Soda and Vinegar

Monthly, pour half a cup of baking soda mixed with white vinegar down the drain. Let it fizz for a few minutes, then flush with hot water. This natural solution can help break down debris and freshen up the drain.
